The module introduces the key principles of governance in a sourcing context and explores leading edge thinking and tools in this critical sourcing topic. The value of the module is to provide participants, whatever their sourcing role, with an in-depth appreciation of the purpose of governance in sourcing management. It enables them to better understand what they are able to do in their role to contribute to successful sourcing governance. The focus of the course is on practice rather than theory, with participants encouraged to consider the relevance of the material to their own roles and to consider how they can make a difference to their own organisation’s sourcing practice.
